How Care 2 U Recruit

All of our employees are strictly vetted before they are employed by Care 2 U. Not only do we seek and look for professionally qualified employees but we seek those who show compassion and commitment. This reflects our reputation for the very highest quality of service and support that we offer and deliver.

All management and senior staff are trained in recruitment and selection along with equality and diversity. This ensures they have the knowledge and skills required to conduct thorough interviews of each potential employee. A minimum of two professional references are obtained and verified and only upon receipt of satisfactory references and a full Disclosure and Barring Service check are employees offered employment.

All successful candidates attend our intensive Induction Training programme at our Office. The topics covered include,

The care worker spends time with an experienced carer shadowing in a Service Users home. Once the initial training is completed and competence assessed, all employees commence their individual and continual development through training. This ensures that they can demonstrate their knowledge and competency required for caring for specific conditions.
